California begins vaccinating elderly people over 65 years old against Corona


The state of California has begun vaccinating elderly people aged 65 years or over with the Corona vaccine, and a statement issued by the California Department of Public Health said that it aims to administer one million additional doses by the end of the week, according to what the American newspaper "Los Angeles Times" reported. .


California had given about 890,000 doses of 3.43 million doses of the vaccine as of Wednesday, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.


And the state has set up mass vaccination sites in sports stadiums and exhibition grounds to speed up distribution. In addition, 36,000 dentists have been added to the group of employees allowed to administer vaccinations, according to a press release.


"We are greatly increasing our efforts to get these vaccines out of the freezer and put them in people's arms," ​​Gavin Newsom, California's governor, said in a video posted on Twitter on Wednesday.


"One of the most important things we can do is increase the number of people who qualify for the vaccine and this is what we are doing today, as we announce that every person 65 and over - about 6.6 million Californians - we are now entering the level to have vaccines available," he added.


About 90% of California residents are still subject to the regional home stay system, which went into effect early last December.


The statement said that health care workers and long-term care residents remain the top priority to receive the vaccine, but the demand for the vaccine exceeds the supply.


"With our hospitals and intensive care units congested, we need to focus on vaccinating California residents at risk of hospitalization to relieve the stress on our healthcare facilities," said Dr. Thomas Aragon, director of the California Department of Public Health.


"Giving priority to individuals 65 years or older will reduce hospitalization and save lives," he added.
